Potty Lines

Sorry! No real post tonight - too busy listening to the President's speech....

But I think I can finally say (um, I guess I mean say again - looks like this announcement was a tad premature last November) that we are coming to the end of the diaper years here!

[and you thought I was going to say something political, didn't you?]

It's been a long slog through mountains of poop and pee (now there's a pretty picture) over the past 17 years, with many a false light at the end of the potty-training tunnel; but today our youngest - of her own volition - went into the bathroom, sat on the potty, and pooped. Just like that. Of course, we were all treated to a detailed play-by-play:

"I pooped!"

"Just half of it, though..."

"Okay, I pooped the rest!"

I'm thinking I should get her a cellphone and a Twitter account - I wonder how many followers she'd attract with tidbits like that?

  1. For a minute there I thought you were going to say you were pregnant.

    That would've been AWESOME.

  3. I sort of gave up trying to get my youngest to potty train. However, I also refused to buy any more diapers or pullups for her either. We went through a lot of vinegar that year.

  4. Congratulations! With my first son, I had to wait until he announced at age 3 1/2 that he didn't want to wear diapers anymore and even then it took awhile. With Boy #2 we are trying at 2 1/4. I don't mind diapers and it is great when they use the toilet on their own, but I hate the in between.

    If I was on Twitter I'd totally follow her.

    our kids' bathroom is near the kichen. it was planned that way because all of the really important conversations happen while they're on the potty.

  12. Getting her a cellphone would sure piss Anna off!

  13. Ha! That is funny. How can they pinch it off like that?

  14. That was hilarious. I would probably actually love to follow her on twitter. I'm immature enough to crack up over potty updates. "OK, I pooped the rest!"

  15. Welcome to the joy of a diaper free zone. Ahhhh..I can almost feel the relief you must be feeling.

  16. Twittering from the potty is almost as disgusting as when people remain on the cell phone in the public rest room.

    Hope your potty training goes more smoothly than mine...

  19. To heck with Twitter - that girl needs her own blog!

  20. LOL! Brought back memories. My son would NOT wipe his own butt for-ever. He would sit on the potty and call out. At my parents' house, a two story colonial, he ended up in the bathroom upstairs while the rest of us were far away in the family room. I wondered where he had gone. As I'm wandering towards the stairs I heard his wee-little 3 1/2 year old voice call out, "Is anyone ever going to wipe my butt?!"

  22. Your post is the only reason I even knew the President gave a speech. Pathetic, huh?
